Glory of the Roman Empire (PC)

 

When a game opens with a cinematic focusing on a little boy kissing and then releasing a dove to fly majestically over an idyllic countryside, you know not to expect much in the way of intense action. So you have to give Glory of the Roman Empire kudos...

Glory of the Roman Empire

 

This city-builder is a decent introduction for new players, but leaves you wishing for more depth.

A good introductory city-builder; effective use of 3D camera

Gets a bit repetitive; not detailed enough for experienced city-builder fans; lacks the charm of the old Caesar games

Sounds difficult!

Of course, being a Roman Citizen, work is not that hard on you. You have time to pray, complain about the lack of wine and the fact that there are no temples in your vicinity. You'll even have time, as a hobby project, to organize a riot or two about...

We played, we thought, we looked for something better

Easy to pick up play ; Walk-before-you-run campaign style ; The simple economic model

Too easy for most genre vets ; Very limited choice of free-form maps ; Little replay value

Someone must be buying historic city-building games because this year we will see three set in ancient Rome with another one the way in 2007. First out of the gate is Glory of the Roman Empire, an obvious title for a game that follows an obvious path.

From the folks over at Haemimont Games comes a new city builder, Glory of the Roman Empire, set, of course, in the height of the Rome's influence in the known world. Players must assume the role of Governor and take on all of the tasks involved in...

Haemimont Games has produced a captivating city builder that leaves out the boring, structured, game play typical of the genre. You will feel like you are shaping a real ancient civilization as you guide your people through each conquest and victory....

I'll tell you one thing, there's nothing better than taking a nice breather from killing monsters, bashing people on the head with a sledge hammer, running away from zombies etc. All these activities are more or less the usual crap you'd normally find...

Glory of the Roman Empire may not have the pedigree of the other ancient history city building games that will arrive over the next few months or so but it's an impressive game in many ways with enough originality to make it appealing to those who have...

Glory of the Roman Empire PC Preview

 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in full command of the historic Roman Empire, controlling the day to day lives of the Roman people? Or better yet, to punish an entire civilization by watching their world fall into complete and utter...

Anyway, I digress. Glory of the Roman Empire is not Sim City, and it's also not a real-time strategy game; it's a sim that allows players to build a massive empire set in the Roman time period. This game requires strategic thinking and planning to keep...
